    Hello everyone. I am a survivor of sexual assault. This happened when I was four. I have been walking out my recovery for forty years. Something that helped me immensely was writing my survivor story. I wrote a fictionalized version of my survivor story and temporarily posted it on Inkitt. I was published for 5 months before my small press publisher went out of business and rights reverted back to me. I had spent 5 years crafting, revising, submitting prior to this, so going out of print was quite discouraging. Here's hoping for a second chance from Inkitt to get this planned duology back out into the hands of readers (paperback, ebook, and audiobook). You can help, but be warned it can be triggering. Please take good care of yourself. You can read for free. Two ways to help are voting a thumbs up, and posting your honest review. Thanks. Here's the blurb. Blurb: When sixteen-year-old Joel Scrivener has a raging nightmare in study hall and someone records it on their phone, he awakens to a living nightmare where everyone knows he's been sexually assaulted, a fact he's not ready to face. This is a secret he's avoided for ten years, mainly through dissociation and suppression. Reeling from a series of bullying incidents posted on YouTube and an ill-timed mid-year move, Joel takes to the woods, leaving the bullies and his broken home behind. However, life as a runaway isn’t easy. Joel finds it difficult to navigate break-ins, wrestle hallucinations, and elude capture. He races to figure out who his dream-world attacker could be, piecing clues together with flashes of remembered images that play endlessly inside his head. Besides these images, the one constant thought occupying Joel’s mind is Amber Walker, the girl he’s been in love with for years. Amber sees little beyond the broken boy Joel has become, despite the letters they’ve written back and forth to each other. But Joel is stronger and more resilient than he looks, and it’s time he convinces Amber of this fact, before he runs out of chances with her for good. Here's the link to the book: Read The Packing House for free on Inkitt. https://www.inkitt.com/stories/thriller/232589

    Inkitt uses an algorithm to collect data from readers as they interact with the story. Currently, I am at 92% of collected data. When I reach 100%, Inkitt will determine if they will publish THE PACKING HOUSE or not. If they do, it will be available in paperback, eBook, and audiobook. Your honest reviews will help this process cross the finish line. Thank you.
